The Unveiling and Rebranding Nigeria Initiative (URNI) is set to mobilize Nigerians as change agents to push for a positive renaissance in the country.
The group in a statement said the forthcoming 60th Independence Anniversary on the 1st of October is an opportunity to reflect on the journey so far.
URNI said it is time for all Nigerians irrespective of tribal, religious, or political affiliations to come together and make the nation.
The statement signed by Hassan Ardo Tukur, Chairman, Board of Trustees, URNI urged Nigerians to put our acts together and join the league of nations who are on the forward march.
The BOT Chairman disclosed that the launch of the Unveiling and Rebranding Initiative is billed for the 3rd of October 2020 in Abuja Nigeria.
“We will be doing our part to mobilize a mass of change agents and leveraging on the scaling effect of technology to push for a positive renaissance in our nationhood.
“We will tell our story in a way that fosters hope and emphasizes the positives and hopefully create a new narrative that will contribute towards making our nation a desirable one to live in. We have lined up a number of activities and events leading up to our silver jubilee celebrations in October.
“These activities and programmes will precede the launch of the Unveiling & Rebranding Initiative billed for the 3rd of October 2020 in Abuja Nigeria.
“As we understand that the process of change is not a walk in the park, our strategy will entail a 10-year development plan encapsulated as the URNI Vision 2030 which will also be unveiled at this epoch-making event.
“Worthy of mention is that this initiative is promoted by a team of active citizens from different walks of life and championed by some distinguished Nigerians among whom is Amb. Hassan Tukur, OFR, who has served the country in different capacities over the last 4 decades. “There will be several engagements monthly leading up to October this year, some of which include: roadshows, campus tour, community engagements and town hall meetings, the making of the book — faces of patriotism, football competition/unity league et cetera.
“It’s also our belief that all hands must be on deck for the work of nation-building to succeed and therefore, we would be calling on all stakeholders to come together, irrespective of tribal, religious, or political affiliations to make our nation work, even at this auspicious moment.
“Towards the launch of the URNI Vision 2030, we are making a clarion call for collaborators, partners, sponsors, and volunteers towards making this programme and vision a success.”
